NJTF-1 Receives Governor's Volunteer Award for Spirit of Service - July 9, 2002

NJTF-1 team members were the Public Safety category recipients of the 2002 Governor's Volunteer Awards. "We must secure the future for the next generation by making a personal commitment to community service," McGreevy said at the July 9 ceremony. When I look out at all the honorees, I know New Jersey is in good, caring hands."

The NJ Secretary of State press release noted that, "In the wake of September 11th, the tremendous courage and commitment of emergency response personnel was never more evident. Task Force One is an all-volunteer unit made up of municipal fire departments, emergency service agencies, including police departments, emergency medical personnel, state agencies, and the private sector trained in collapsed structure search and rescue. Their efforts following the terrorist attacks proved to be invaluable to the rescue operation and contributed greatly to the overall response effort."
